Manchester-Essex Woodlands Professional Review and Guide
"After taking a 0.15-mile boardwalk across a cedar swamp teeming with life, this hike explores granite hills, an old cart road, and bogs dense with bayberry, maples, and blueberries. Set out on the crushed-gravel road (Old School Road) heading southwest beyond a metal gate barring vehicle access.
Crossing this spectacular long footbridge, you’ll see a rich array of birds, insects, and wildflowers. Close to the opposite bank, the boardwalk widens to include a lookout platform. Below that are steps to a dock at water level. After enjoying the view, and perhaps stopping to apply some bug spray, continue west to the boardwalk’s end."
